Noticias del departamento de lenguas (News from the Department of Modern Languages)
Three 2013 graduates have two things in common: they all majored or minored in Modern Languages and they are all currently putting those languages to work.
Elizabeth Blowers, who was a double major in French and Education, is currently working with Teaching Assistant Program in France (TAPIF) teaching English in at the Université de Strasbourg. She has plans to go on to graduate school in French, or to continue teaching French in the United States or with the Peace Corps. So far, she has been accepted to graduate French programs at West Virginia University and Syracuse University.
Peter Hartz graduated in December 2013 with a French major and is teaching French at Siena Catholic Academy in Rochester. He has applied to participate in the TAPIF program next year.
And Mark Prunella-Miller, who was a double major in Biology and Spanish, is teaching Biology for the Peace Corps in Mozambique, where he has expanded his language skills to include Portugese.
